You can help out a local group of young adults and get your small jobs taken care of, too.

Soon the leaves will be falling and homeowners will need to rake their leaves. Don't despair! Theplace2b youth have decided to offer their services and rake leaves and do other yard work for members of the community. After a youth council meeting, they have agreed to offer their services for free for the elderly and disabled. They request that those who do not fall in this category give a donation to their group fund. They are saving money for a new pool table and a new PS3 control for theplace2b. The youth will be supervised by staff and are available after school and on the weekends. If you need some help, please contact Miriam. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
